Though not quite definitive as licensees could still pull out (losing their deposit) or not make final payments the list is pretty much who'll get licenses now.

Various telcos (BT, C&W, Colt and more than likely Carphone Warehouse) have said they'll use the license to offer in-office GSM services to companies. BT will use it in a similar way to their Fusion service.

This is the first of several spectrum auctions that Ofcom is intending to offer.
